On this washer, the dl code indicates a failed lid lock mechanism. Pressing pause/cancel should reset the controls.

You may have to unplug the unit for 20-30 minutes, then restore the power.

If that doesn't work, the only other solution would be to replace the door lock assembly.

The "dl" code indicates a door lock error. This code is generated when the machine senses that the door cannot be locked. The door will attempt to lock six times before displaying the error code. I would use a multimeter or ohmmeter to check the switch. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity will indicate a faulty switch. Check the video at the followiing link and see if it helps you out. Sure hope so and best wishes.

The display is reading dL after dialing the wash type and and start button. The lid lock clicks and I can hear the timer ticking. The lid was forced open when the beeping wouldn't stop be my son.


Hi,

Your problem sounds like the same problem that exists on the whirlpool front load machine. The main circuit board thinks there's something wrong with the door lock so you get the dL code. The problem is there are cold solder joints on the circuit board that interrupt the information going back to the control board. If possible you may want to remove that circuit board and either you or a good appliance repair shop could touch up the heavy solder points for the relays and spade connectors. Good luck.

Whirlpool GHW9400 Door will not latch. Washer turns on, Starts clicking then flashes dL F


Hi, DL means Door Lock Failure while F is either (F80, 82,
84, 85).....

DL flashes if the following conditions occur:
  • Door lid is not closed completely due to interference.
  • Wash media buildup is preventing the lock bolt from extending.
  • Machine/motor control detects open door lid switch when attempting to lock.
  • Machine/motor control cannot determine if door lid is in a locked state.

Washer displays message of dl when trying to start washer


Hello bculwil Welcome

“dL” (Door/Lid cannot lock)
Indicates lid is not locked. Check for items caught in the lid
keeping it from closing. Press PAUSE/CANCEL once to clear
the code.

Or the lid lock sensor is faulty and needs to be diagnosed and replaced
